I am contimplating a corner tank. Do you end up hating the back point and suggest that I go with a bow front tank?

I have a 54 gallon bowfront corner tank right now and I like it, but the big problem is you end up with a dark area in the back. I have heard others say the curved glass front distorts the view but I have not found this to be the case, there is a nice large viewable area.

Perhaps distort isn't the right wording, but anytime you have the curved fronts (I've both had them, and I still have one) the curve does do the magnifying glass trick on the fish. The rounded front tanks are worse... the fish does this weird spatial warp as it swims to a corner and then down the next side.
fish is swimming...
